As reported in the independent.ie on 05th December, it appears the Government are about to do a U-turn on abolishing or reducing flat rate expenses for nearly 600,000 employees
Flat rate expenses are to cover work-related expenses and as we previously advised, Revenue had undertaken a review of these to be withdrawn from 1st January 2020.
It seems due to ongoing pressure and opposition from various trade unions this will now been postponed until 01st January 2021.
A Department of Finance spokesperson said, “work is ongoing on this matter”.
“Minister Donohoe will be in a position to make a statement in respect of this in due course,” they said.
We hope to have further details soon…
